Description:
This little Neighbourhood is located on a warm sunny place near the sea, with lakes and rivers.
It is pretty landscaped and flat in the buildable areas.
It features 18 lots and 5 of them are community buildings which are fully open for business. So you can visit them or buy them and run your own business.

All lots are fully furnished. The townhouse features 2 apartments and 1 is fully furnished. The sizes of the lot is appropriate for enlarging your houses - especially the starter lots.
You will only need 3 EP’s: Nightlife, University, Open for Business


There are three main streets:

Stafford Lane: Here you find the more expensive houses. They are built in a modern way and feature everything for better situated families with children. One of the houses is a home business.
Golden Drive: On this drive you can find cottages. Two of them are starter cottages. They are very cozy and some fit perfectly for a retired couple, single etc.
Blueberry Lane: This Lane is exclusively built for starter houses.
Main Street: Townhouse: The Townhouse is situated on the main street in the Downtown.



And five Community Lots:
Bruce Inn: A restaurant with bowling
